You'll learn, for example, how to extend Visual Studio with your own customizations, so that you can make it perform the way you want. You will then explore everything about NuGet package, test applications using Live Unit Testing, and learn how to make code templates using the T4 code generation tool. You’ll get to grips with the richer JavaScript IntelliSense, which will help you focus more on coding. Moving on, you’ll learn to work with the dedicated workloads for data storage and data science.
